How can I answer that ?<br><br><br>"At the moment ?" is my only true answer for you lolOlive, if you think Brothers In Arms is nothing more than a RCP power anthem, then you're obviously missing something... To me it's one of the most brilliant action tracks of the last few years.Ola team ! <br>Maybe you do know Joe Kramer won't return to score Mission Impossible 6. And no one seems to know who will.<br>So here's my question : any chance to see someone from RC doing this ? <br><br>Thanks for reading me. Keep goin' your good job here, it's appreciated. :)<br>Wow. Pretty solid! It keeps the core track intact and, somehow, adds even more raw power into it. Thanks for sharing!
@MrZimmerFan<br><br><Is better because there is variety and orchestration><br><br>It is not because a score is orchestrated that it is automatically superior to one half orchestrated and half electronic. My problem with JL is that it's a small score for a composer with as many facets as Elfman. The music is uninspired and (taking one or another track) ends as it begins, nothing catches yours ears beyond of the romantic moments and of the new interpretations of the themes for the heroes.<br><br>@mpolonest<br><br><I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force the classic themes.><br><br>Elfman had two paths: Ignore everything and do things his way or respect what Zimmer did and maintain the sound of previous films. What did he do? He made an uninspiring hybrid of both.<br><br>@HybridSoldier<br><br><Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.><br><br>Everyone in RCP knows how to do a power anthem these days.<br><br>@Mephariel<br><br><I would not have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence.><br><br>Obviously not. It could be in smaller jobs and present some potential for years to come.<br>I think I just sharted myself. Thanks!I'm surprised to have not seen more discussion of this score; I honestly think it represents some of the best music out of RCP in the past half-decade. Yeah, it still has the Journey to the Line / Time four-chord power anthem thing going on, but outside of those themes you have some really creative material that at times doesn't even feel stylistically RCP, and hell, even those structurally-simplistic themes are unusually well-orchestrated. And there's a real orchestra!Some of you may like this guy's cover of Brothers in Arms! Pretty epic, honestly. <br><br> com/watch?v=LCIY41hopq4This score has improved my mood on more than one occasion. Nancy Meyers needs to make another movie, so Hans can score it. lol.
Hello great team of Hans Zimmer,<br><br>I was recently listening to "The Might of Rome" (Gladiator soundtrack) and I am craving to listen the long version of the piece around 2:38 - 2:48 (something like an oriental flute). Does it exist as a standalone composition? Is it inspired from some third party artist, if yes, can you please tell my which one?<br><br>Thanks!@Olive<br><br>Wallfisch's career unquestionably benefited from his involvement with Zimmer. He wouldn't have gotten a chance to work on blockbuster films like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049 without Zimmer's influence. Wallfisch is a very talented composer, but let's be honest here, his music doesn't immediately strikes anyone as a big action guy. Having Zimmer's name pushing you helps.Hybrid, what do you admire more: Black Hawk Down or Tears of the Sun?"Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place."<br><br>Out of place, yes. Horrendous, no.Leagues above, and yet I doubt Ben will ever be able to write something like "Brothers In Arms" from Mad Max.<br><br>Comparing people is kinda useless...<br><br>The only who's right is Hans in the end, he knows when to use one and when to use the other... ;)
@Edmund<br>Iím in the same boat. When I watch a movie I normally donít pay attention to the music unless itís really distinctive. As a stand alone listening experience I usually want to get music that fits a mood and can hold my interest throughout. Take Silvestriís Avengers score for example. The big statements of the main theme and some of the action cues are excellent. Unfortunately itís surrounded by generic underscore that slows the album down imo. But then you have TASM2, which constantly has something going on no matter what. I feel like thatís something which does relate to the directors, not so much the talent level of the composers.<br><br>@olive<br>Ben Wallfisch is LEAGUES ahead of JXL as a composer, partly because heís had years of experience in film composing. Hopefully his recent successes give him more high profile projects.<br><br>As for Justice League, I actually love that score, but I think the main issue is Elfman completely ignoring what came before and trying to force in the classic themes. Had he done his own spin on Zimmerís material there would a better connection to the previous ones.Elfman's score is like Whedon, horrendous & out of place.@Olive: Is better because there is variety and orchestration, and i'm not a purist (i liked BvS, there is more complexity in it than in MoS), but Danny Elfman has more integrity in that score than in that two scores.He did!<br><br>The action material in "Do You Bleed?" is by XL! <br>Wallfisch has shown himself to be a superior composer to XL, let's face it. I do not even see why he's running after Zimmer since he's able to run a career himself.<br><br>@TheZimmerFan <br><br><But the score by Elfman is miles better than MoS and BvS (for those two, BvS is much interesting and better than MoS, which is only good)><br><br><br>The music is less simplistic and may please the purists, but, no, MoS and BvS are better by a small margin than JL by one factor: thematic material and characterization of the movie.  Elfman should have had more freedom to work on the themes he and Williams wrote.<br>

Soundtrack is awesome. Ranks up there with The Last Samurai and The Gladiator for sure. I'll be watching for Hans Zimmer's name on upcoming movies and will watch them accordingly!

The music is very driving and disturbing at the same time, very beautiful and a memorable addition to my collection.

What I would like to know is who decided to use bat species for the track names and what significance the names have to each track.
I've done a little research, but would like to know from the composers or someone else about this.

The soundtrack is good. But I think the Broken Arrow soundtrack is better then Batman Begins.

Track "--Molossus"-- at the end is similar to track "--Outburst Of Rage"-- from Black Rain expanded~*

I agree that all tracks are not so good, but track 1 Vespertilo, track 3 Myotis and trac 10 Molossus are simply EXHILARATING, and no one can deny that!

Listening to it right now - Hans Zimmer is definitely one of the best composers in existence today. This soundtrack and the one from "--Broken Arrow"-- are certainly my two favorites ever.

I like this soundtrack, its got some good quality music, but sometimes it just seems like your being dragged along with some of the songs, not walking with it. The track 10, Molossus is a good song to drive to!

Anyway, this soundtrack to me, is designed to accompany the movie, then it is to listen to privatly in the comfort of your own home.

This soundtrack is awesome. I love Tadarida. There is an overwhelming range of emotion in the music as there should be par the scene. I must admit though, I have seen the movie 4 times so far, and agree with many others, there has got to be more music released. Hans, you are teasing me with some of these tracks. This music you create is like a drug. It is very addictive. There is a piece of music when Bruce is in the cave by the waterfall, I love that piece, and the music used, or modified, when Bruce uses coercion to gain information from Gordon and then escapes. And of course the end title. A sonic delite!

For me, this is one of those scores i like better with every listen. I liked the score before i went to see the movie and i like it even more ater i've seen it. Some may not agree, but i think it fits the new Batman style perfectly. True, there could have been a more dominant and complex theme, but then again - why, if this works so good. The score itself is very dark, rhythmic and full of Zimmerish action and electronic sounds as well as softer piano moments. I also like the idea of using bat-like sounds, flaping of wings and those very disturbing sounds in "--Tadarida"--. The only pieces i'm missing a lot on the OST are the ones playing during the incredibly fast-paced showdown inside the railway at the end and of course the End Titles (can't wait for the DVD, hehe).

its a good score.but not great.
the main problem is Zimmers point of view.He tries again to make a masterpiece.
If he has used his themes more often in this score(batman and bruce theme) the score will be better.the reviews better.and a beter listening experience.
in the other hand I think JNH Love theme is too bland.
barbastella,Espicius,molossus,antrozus(where is the rest of the track?),lasirius(not in the movie) and of course,the amazing END CREDITS are the best of this score.
I'm waiting for end credits with better quality.the best track so far.

This score is absolutely phenomenal. Its typical Zimmer style and i think the colaboration with James Newton Howard was a good decision. Its dark and powerful and fits perfectly to the movie. There are fewer memorable themes compared to other Zimmer scores but the concept still works. Theres one very short theme (basically just two long tones) played over and over again throughout the score. It makes the score sound exciting and explains the character of batman that is impressed by his fears and his hard childhood. Thanks to the score you can literally feel the strength that he receives from his ability to use his fear as his ally. The overall sound is orchestra based and enriched with a lot of synthetical sounds and sweeping beats - just as we like Zimmer. Theres a big dynamical range, though its mostly dark, loud and enthralling - just as the movie is. One of my favorite Zimmer scores.

ok now heard the music and seen the movie. And there s not a moment in the film when the music does not match. Movie is black and so is the score, so im backstepping on what a said before.....just a little though....ok for the score but i maintain my opinion on saying its "--dťjŗ vu"-- hans zimmer score...even if its good and lets just say i agree with one other opinion :"--its too short and there are not enough memorable moments in the score.....anyhow we could go like that for ages saying YES and NO. So Mr ZIMMER even if I DO recognize ur style each time, even if I DO think that some score are almost identicals in rythms and so on......I DO like ur style a lot and well I AM a hans ZIMMER FAN.....hope u ll release a longer BATMAN BEGINS score
